Welcome to St Bride's

During the interregnum we are pleased to welcome Bill Wilson.

Ordained in Manchester, Bill now lives in Brighton with his wife Anne. He retired in 2010 after 17 years at St James, Paddington during which time he also served as Area Dean of Westminster and a member of the Diocesan Advisory Comittee for the care of Churches.

Since then he has covered other interregnums at St Andrew-by-the-Wardrobe and St Michael's Cornhill. Amongst his interests, Bill lists 19th century church architecture, campanology and 'church-crawling'.

'Love your neighbour as yourself.' (Mark 12:31)

C.S. Lewis has a good piece of advice about loving our neighbour. In Mere Christianity he writes that we should not waste time wondering whether or not we love our neighbour. Instead we should simply act as though we do. When we behave as if we love someone, we gradually discover that we are indeed beginning to love them. Lewis is warning us that sometimes we contort ourselves with theoretical questions, instead of just getting on and doing it. Love put into action becomes self-fulfilling.

Lord, you call us to love and give us the example of love you showed us all. Help us not to be afraid to follow your example. Amen.

Wash the Face of an Angel

St Bride's needs at least £200,000 to restore and maintain its beautiful interior.

The Wash the Face of an Angel campaign is part of our Community Appeal which aims to let you become personally involved in helping safeguard the church's future by sponsporing the cleaning and restoration of items within the church.
